One the day of Yugaadi.. I wish everyone..
Yugadi Habbada Shubhashayagalu” – ಯುಗಾದಿ ಹಬ್ಬದ ಶುಭಾಶಯಗಳು
But why the people at Bengaluru, of Bengaluru.. or any where is wishing me Happy Ugaadi?? (mene kya ugaa diya?).. Hehe.. just kidding.. It is not UGADI.. it is YUGAADI.. ಯುಗಾದಿ..
I was discussing the same thing with lot of brainy heads.. and was trying to make them understand this.. They were fed up of my explainations.. They sat beside me.. tried to make me understand that this is a festival celebrated in many parts of the country, and the names are different in each and every region. They also suggested.. oh no.. they advised me to repeat the word as Ugaadi.. They believe India is one country and why are we showing our diversity..
Ok.. simple answer here.. If I wish you “Happy new ear” instead of “Year” what will someone think.. (they will think that I am low on IQ as English is a superior language according to many people in the country).. I will say.. that is because of the unawareness of the language. So, let me explain you a small equation about this word YUGADI..
People normally stay quiet and dont argue once they see the sentences “AS PER the LATEST SURVEY OF UK”, “AS PER WIKIPEDIA”, “AS PER VEDA” “AS SAID IN SAMSKRITHA”. no.. no-one will argue, if you start your sentence with these phrases.. so “AS per the senior language “Samskritha” YUGA – New Age, AADI – Start..
So, YUGADI is derived from Samskritha words yuga (age) and ādi (beginning): “the beginning of a new age”
Lunar calendars have a 60-year cycle and starts the new year on Yugadi i.e., on “Chaitra Sudhdha Paadyami”. After the completion of 60 years,the calendar starts a new with the first year.
This country has everything in place, things are just perfectly planned.. But we still follow Calendar suggested by someone else..
Anyways.. there were some guys who remembered our New year and are trying to uplift this festival’s importance by celebrating it. Thanks to those people 🙂
